    What I got from it was his max sentence is 18 years as opposed to 25 with the plea deal. When he is done serving time in prison he will be on 5 years probation, which they said was unlikely because he is probably going to be deported.
    THat would work for me...especially if he is in the general population and Big Bubba takes a liking to him in the showers....if you get my drift.

    Poor thing, I wish I could sender her flowers or something. She must have been terrified and no one heard anything?

    WHAT???? That useless bastard should have his privates hacked with a dull, rusty knife (just enough to elicit a raging MRSA) , left out in the sun to bake for 23 hours a day without water, and moldy buggy stale bread to eat. PLEA DEALS and PROBATION, my a--! Where does the victim get justice??

    Maybe she didn't want to buy him a drink!
    Just kidding, y'll...before you start attacking me
    He got caught, though.

    Considering the man made statements basically admitting his guilt that were reported in the media at the time, don't fancy his chances of withdrawing his not guilty plea.

    Just so everyone knows, here in NYS and NYC most all but the most horrible crimes (and perhaps even then), are pleaded down one or two levels. The practice is so common place that those in the know when examining arrest/criminal records (say as part of an employment application or security clearance check), will ask and or look for the "under-lying charge".

    In short due to the vast numbers of persons arrested here that if every single case went to trail things would be slower than they already are, Then there would be the vast court and other costs that would have to be absorbed by the state and local governments.

    This plea dealing occurs even when persons are arrested for what are considered "petty offences" such as jumping a turnstile or being caught with one or two "joints". If one does not have the means for a private attorney, normally the accused is advised to plead guilty to a lesser charge. What often is not explained is the consequences and reprecussions of such an action, that is the person now has a criminal record which can shut many doors in future.

    Another benefit to the courts/LE is that outside of the most unusual circimstances a guility plea cannot be appealed/reversed. There are persons rotting away in NYS prisons because they plead guilty to crimes even when the evidence was doubtful at best.

    As it relates to this group, you have no idea how many young people who wish to become nurses, firefighers, LE and such are shocked to find out that may not be possible because of something like the above.

    He still could face almost two decades in prison. I honestly think they could have won the attempted murder charge against him, but at least this way they don't have to do a lengthy trial etc.

    A Moroccan National????... Deport him please! Make him serve some time in prison first though.
    A better plan would be to contract with the Moroccans to incarcerate him in Morocco. I'm sure he'd much rather be locked up in the US than in Morocco.

    Not necessarily....in Morocco they may not even view this as a crime....remember the third world mentality. They are not very evolved when it comes to womens rights.

    Feel bad for the girl, the guy obviously had issues. But a quick thing I want to point out:

    Thread title is a bit misleading. The girl was not attacked BECAUSE she was a nurse nor while working. So, in essence, you had a girl at a bar being assaulted (who happens to be a nurse), not a nurse being assaulted. There is a difference. The difference isn't so much that the crime is better/worse but........motivation is different.

    I was scanning the articles and replies to find the connection to her being a nurse and the beating. There is none. She was at a club/bar and ran into the wrong guy. It would have gone the same way if she were a McD's worker, an engineer or a teacher.

    I was wondering the same thing-what does her being a nurse have to do with it and why does the press keep identifying her as such?

    Regardless, what a sicko the guy is and he def should be hung by a safety pin through the tip of his...

    And beaten to a pulp!

    I read the article and I don't think the title is misleading. I assumed from the title that a nurse was attacked but I had to read the article to find out how.

    I know, its a fine line but, I'm lead to believe her being a nurse is why she was attacked by the title. Not so. TBH, if the title read............"Girl attacked at nightclub"...........I'd have said "That's the nightlife for ya" and moved on.

    It's a way to illustrate how brutal the attack was. Deep down people might feel that she could have done something to "deserve" or at the least "warrant" the attack. When you read that he attacked a nurse, what could a nurse () do to warrant an attack?

    Same as if you don't report someone as kicking an animal, you report that they were kicking a puppy. It gives an emotional connection to the reader.
